Re: Rally and Vigil at the Sentinel - June 17th

The last time a protest like this was organized in front of the Sentinel, was to protest their biased reporting about Mumia Abu-Jamal. They often referred to Mumia as a cop killer. Durring the protest, the Editor Tom Honig came out and spoke to us. That occurred in part because we had previously asked him to meet with us. Later, I managed to publish an op-ed asking that Mumia be set free, in part based on the new evidence that Arnold Beverly was the person who shot Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. That op-ed ran opposite a cartoon that lampooned Santa Cruz activists who were supporting Mumia. I guess they just couldn't come up with more than a few sentences to justify their position. Given enough time and enough words, the "fry Mumia" camp can be shown to be missing major pieces of the puzzle.
